Are They Or Aren’t They?: Zangief

RED CYCLONE!

Look at this big guy!   Just look at him!  For those that don’t know, this is Zangief.  His interests are Mother Russia, Mohawks, and Wrestling Bears.  Speaking of “bears,” he seems to match that profile, does he not?  Zangief has been a Street Fighter mainstay since the classic Street Fighter II.  Being such a strong character, Zangief never backs down from a fight.  Even going all out against female characters such as Chun Li or Cammy.  Does that make him a misogynist?  Or could he possibly be hiding something else?

Nerd Music: 80s & 90s Cartoon Covers

I would SO watch this show.
Remember when cartoons were AWESOME? Me too.

It’s fair to say most mainstream nerds grew up as kids in the late Eighties or early Nineties. You can see examples of this just by walking into a Hot Topic and counting the number of Care Bears and He-Man shirts for sale. It becomes especially apparent if you listen to a couple of B-sides from your favorite artists. In this special edition of Nerd Music, we’ll be highlighting some of the best old-school cartoon covers around.

Are They Or Aren't They?: Link

Link!  You come to town!  Come to save...the princess Zelda!
Almost anyone that has touched a video game system is familiar with The Legend of Zelda series and Link, its silent protagonist.  Using Nintendo’s “If it ain’t broke” formula, each game has small to drastic gameplay differences, with only slight tweaks to the storyline.  Link’s heritage or birthplace may change, but his dedication to heroism (brief kleptomania with townspeople’s rupees aside) has stayed consistent.  However, with that foppish hat and tight little booties, the question gets asked:  Could Link be gay?

They Might Be Giants is an “alternative-rock” group that has been around since 1982. Starting out with members John Flansburgh, John Linnell, and…a drum machine, the band eventually recruited more members and found success with their first full albums “They Might Be Giants” and “Lincoln.” You’ve probably heard They Might Be Giants before, even if you didn’t realize it.

Nerd Music: The Protomen

The Protomen
Taken from myspace.com/theprotomen

Do you like Mega Man? Do you like epic, multiple act, rock operas? Then, The Protomen may be the band for you.
Hailing from Tennesse, The Protomen first took the stage a few years back with their self-titled debut album. Using the basic Mega Man mythos as a springboard, it played out scenes of a dark future, where Wily has already taken over the world and Mega Man sets out to avenge his fallen brother Protoman. Each track varies from high octane fight music, to a depressing funeral march.
